If you never cut the umbilical cord with the Netherlands, you could always rely on shortwave radio to keep you in touch with the news from the Dutch.
Maybe your Dutch grandparents emigrated to the US in the 1950s. Or your parents left Holland’s shores to settle in Australia in the 1960s. Perhaps you tried to find a new life far from Friesland, Groningen or Limburg in the 1970s.
Whatever your background, you lost your radio link with the old country in June 2012. But all is not lost! If you’re still yearning for your weekly fix of Holland’s news in Dutch, DWDW will supply you with all you need.
The diligent folks at DWDW (De Week Die Was) have just published their 10th weekly roundup. Listen to it here to brush up your Dutch: De Week Die Was .
Oh, and you can also listen to the show when you’re out on a remote campsite somewhere in Italy, Austria or France!
